Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (January 14, 2004)–An Allen & Heath iDR-8 has been installed in Berjaya Times Square, a new multi-million dollar retail and entertainment development in the heart of Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur. The 7.5 million sq. ft. development is the largest shopping and leisure complex in Malaysia and houses the largest indoor theme park in the Asia Pacific region.
An iDR-8 unit with an iDR-out expander has been installed as a zone controller in the Berjaya Times Square indoor theme park, where a resident DJ pumps out music. The signal from the indoor theme park’s DJ mixer is distributed to 16 zone loudspeakers.
The iDR system’s programable patches have been used to create an event schedule at the theme park. At 2.30 p.m. daily, the zone volumes gradually increase with a 10 second crossfade. Similarly, at 10 p.m., the volume automatically decreases with the same crossfade effect. There is a dedicated PC at the DJ booth for remote control of the iDR-8 and iDR-out over Cat 5 cable.
